Back Pain Q&A
Back Pain Q & A
One of the most common reasons individuals miss work and visit the doctor is back pain. It is one of the primary causes of disability and poor life quality. People’s discs often degrade as they get older. The lumbar discs degrade over time as a result of wear and tear and the tension we place on our backs. Our discs can no longer perform their functions, and we experience pain as a result of this wear and tear. Many people avoid seeking medical help for their back discomfort because they don’t want to undergo back surgery. Their discomfort frequently worsens, and their condition remains unchanged. Surgery isn’t the sole option, and a pain management specialist can assist you in determining the source of your back discomfort.
Surgery isn’t the only way to get rid of chronic back pain. To keep you pain-free and out of surgery, the Slocum-Dickson pain management team employs a variety of techniques. Injections such as epidural steroid, sacral steroid, trigger point, joint, intra articular, and facet join are common therapies. Nerve blocks and radiofrequency ablations are two other procedures. Slocum-Dickson’s pain management department will find the source of your suffering and help you live a pain-free life.
One of the best things about Slocum-Dickson is the continuity of care. If our pain management team determines that the pain management treatment is no longer working for your particular condition, they can refer you directly to our Physical Therapy team or our Orthopaedic Department for additional care. All of our physicians are on your care team and they share your medical history, test results, treatment plans and health goals. The Slocum-Dickson team will work together as a cohesive team to provide you with the best possible care.
If you’re still feeling back pain after three months of recovery from back surgery, you should consider scheduling an appointment with one of our pain management specialists. Pain control and management after surgery can make a difference in your overall recovery time. Swelling and scar tissue can cause back pain after surgery. This doesn’t necessarily mean the surgery was not a success, but sometimes it’s beneficial to combine pain management and physical therapy during your postoperative period. Often a Pain Management specialist can help you achieve the relief you are searching for.
